GF, the Grammatical Framework, works great if you know what your input
language looks like, but it is rather strict about what it will parse.
 There are existing grammars for many natural languages that you can
use to quickly build a translator between grammatically correct
statements in natural language, for example.  However, to accept
"real-world" natural language (with acronyms, evolving vocabularies,
typos and things like IMs or SMS short-cuts ("U busy?") you'd need to
define *and maintain* a new language definition some how.
